About Kim

I used to own a Thai restaurant in Las Cruces for over 15+ years. I decided to call it quits and retired to Thailand to spend time and take care my mother and spend time with family. Now I'm back in the States and working as a realtor. I'll be happy to help you if I can.

My son, Nathan, is in his medical residency and helps with the bookings when I'm away.

Kim purchased this house in 1998

A dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough amazing things about this beautiful vacation home.

From the moment we arrived to our departure, we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We were on a mini vacation with our grandsons and for 4 days they were overjoyed to swim every waking minute in the spacious, sparking pool and hot tub. My husband challenged them to a game of billiards in the evenings, which was a big hit with the whole family.

I was in heaven ,when I saw the most amazing kitchen that I would get to whip up anything I could imagine. Rachel Ray would be envious of this well stocked, beautiful chef's kitchen.

The kids also loved the Thai cushions,while watching the huge screen TV. I ended up buying two of them when I got home

The whole house is decorated in a lovely Thai inspired decor, that we found enchanting and interesting.

The beds were so comfortable, the showers spacious and first class.

This home is in a gorgeous neighborhood, with lush flowers and vegetation.

We all want to plan another few days here, to relax and recharge our batteries. Maybe even get in a round of golf at the gorgeous golf course nearby.

Thank you Kim, for you superb vacation home.

Love, The Murphy's

Fantastic home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Kimberly's lovely home provided the perfect getaway for my brother, my sister, myself, and our respective spouses. My siblings and I regularly visited our aunt and uncle in Las Cruces when we were growing up, so we knew what to expect in the area, but we were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful home in Las Cruces being offered on VRBO. The description of the property sounded inviting, and we were not disappointed. The rooms and beds are comfortable, the layout of the home is thoughtful and efficient, the furnishings and decorations are tasteful, and the pool and hot tub are devine. We spent every evening in the hot tub, gazing at the stars while soaking in 103° water. There is very little light pollution in the Picacho Hills, and it was a new moon while we were there, so the stars shone like diamonds...

The home is large, and provides enough space so that people aren't tripping over each other. But, there are also excellent rooms for gathering, dining, and conversing, including a kitchen which is well-appointed with everything that's needed to prepare meals for a group.

By the way, for dining-out options, we learned that many of the best restaurants in the area are situated east of Las Cruces in Mesilla, so it turns out that Lemongrass Delight is actually close to many good places to eat. A few places to try are St. Clair Winery & Bistro (a -very- good restaurant), La Posta, and nearby in Picacho Hills, Great American Steak Burger (which offers much more than just burgers).

All in all, Lemongrass Delight provided us with everything we were looking for: privacy, comfort, relaxation, access to services, and breathtaking surroundings. Kimberly bent over backwards to make our stay an enjoyable one, and we are grateful for her hospitality. I highly recommend her home to anyone wanting to enjoy a luxurious vacation in a beautiful setting.

5 Star Owner

  • 4 of 5

Kim was wonderful to work with - quickly responded to any question/concerns. The home worked great for us - three couples on our first visit to Las Cruces. We arrived late due to a missed connection in Dallas so didn't get to the house until midnight - had some issue finding the house as there was no marker at the drive. The house offered plenty of room for us and the backyard - pool area was very well maintained. Enjoyed having coffee watching the sun come up over the mountains a great deal! Only thing keeping this from a 5 star score was some initial issues with the hot tub but Kim was very responsive and had it fixed within a few days. Would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Hi Terry, Thank you for your reviewed which help us to improve on what it's needed. We're really appreciated that your reviewed had brought to our attention about the marker of the house. We are having the house number mark on the curbside now. Actually, the house number is marked on the fascia northeast side. Of course, it's hard to see especially in the dark. I thought the spot lights that I left them on for you would help. Please accept our apology for the trouble of finding our place. We hope to have you back anytime and thank you for recommending anyone to our property. Sincerely, Kimberly.

Amazing Property! Must Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 4 days and loved every minute! From the top of the line chef's kitchen, large living room, amazing bedrooms and phenomenal swimming pool, we felt right at home. The master bedroom was gigantic and had an amazing bathroom with a walk in shower and closet. The other bedrooms were great sized with really nice bathrooms. My kids spent the entire time in the swimming pool. It is a perfect vacation house. If we return to Las Cruces, we will definitely be staying here again!!!

This home was spacious and had a dream kitchen....fully equipped. The separation of the master bedroom and the other two was perfect for us. The pool and patio was where we all gathered. We never even used the living room, although it had plenty of room. The pool table was a real bonus. We will definitely stay here again.
